    have gained two days in a row... and have been adding quite a bit of salt to the soups... would salt make me retain water like this? just cant understand it. And will salt effect my over all fat loss?

    SALT does increase fluid retention, especially on a VLCD. I suggest you drop it and increase your water intake and watch the pounds roll away.

    Salt is not one of the allowed additives!!! And yes, it does make you retain water!

    Unless you get cramp. Then it can be helpful, but only a few grains in soup. Basically it's best avoided.

    I tend to add a little to my soups, as I was getting quite a bit of cramp, and that's now gone.

    And me, but it's gone these days. It was quite bad in the early weeks. I have noticed that Ii sometimes get cramp too if I don't drink enough water.

    Water. The cure for every ill.
